Dubai International Airport has made traveling easy for unaccompanied young flyers through the opening of a dedicated children lounge.
The lounge has been opened by Dnata, one of the world’s largest air services providers, based in Dubai. According to the company representatives, the lounge is aimed at enhancing the young flyers’ travel experience.
Designed and launched exclusively for unaccompanied minors, whose safety, security and comfort are ensured by Dnata’s specially trained team at the airport, the children lounge is located at Terminal 1.
The lounge is tastefully decorated in vibrant colours, and is fully equipped with games and entertainment screens to keep the young guests occupied throughout the day. Manned by experienced, multilingual staff, the lounge is open 24 hours.
At Dnata, over 70 dedicated agents work closely with the airline representatives to make sure that the unaccompanied minors are in safe hands, reach departure gates on time and receive priority boarding. Lately, the company has contributed to make these services increasingly popular in the UAE. In 2018, a team at Dnata assisted about 8,000 unaccompanied minors at Dubai International (DXB).
Steve Allen, Divisional Senior Vice President, UAE Airport Operations, Dnata, said, “We have earned the trust of thousands of parents with our safe and reliable services for unaccompanied minors over the past years. We are delighted to add more value to our offering and further enhance young passengers’ travel experience by opening our new lounge, which has been specifically designed to meet the needs and taste of children of all ages.”
Dnata provides its services for unaccompanied minors at the two Dubai airports to over 120 airline partners. Customers can contact their airlines for further information about the service.
